Apple Watch ECG/AirPod issues

I have noticed that since my PM implant on 04/01/21 I can no longer get an ECG on my Apple Watch 5. I was able to do this before and wonder if it is because with my cardiomyopathy I am pacing at 99%.  I also am having an issue with my AirPods. After about 15 seconds my left AirPod stops working. I have verified that they are charged.  I could find nothing about this on the Apple website. 

Maybe it's just coincidence but just curious 🙂

I've had a PM since May, 2020. I recently got the Apple Watch 6  and I've had no problem accessing the ECG function. Can't speak to the Air pods though.

I had issues the first few months I owned airpods. One side would not charge at times. I found I had to make sure they were in the case snug and since then. No issues. I have AirPod pros. You should still be able to do ecg's. I pace 100% and it works fine. If you have Afib it may not read as well.

I'm using Apple Watch SE with the ECG function, so I can't comment about the ECG. For the AirPods, I have both AirPods and AirPods Pro, both work prefectly without an issue after my PM implatation surgery.
